Q: "The Semaphore Period Has Timed Out"

Hi,I have an ISO file on my computer which has been there for a long time, but recently whenever I've tried to use it I just get an error saying: "The semaphore timeout period has expired". I get the same error if I try to delete it. Please can someone tell me how to fix or delete the file?Thanks,JoeEdit: I've just got the same error when trying to open a folder on the same drive.

Preferred Solution: "The Semaphore Period Has Timed Out"

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: "The Semaphore Period Has Timed Out"

You can give Unlocker a try and see if it will delete the file or use it.

Hi, I use Windows XP Pro and I am getting this error message in the system event log everytime I log in. Now I only get one, but just recently there are like 3 or 4 in a row many times during the initial log in to the internet network.

I have tried to search everywhere and google and yahoo for an answer but never was able to get a clear solution.

Luckily, I am able to get online just fine but the idea of this showing up constantly bothers me. It was fine, for about 4 months it stopped showing up after I did no changes to my system but its now back.

Also for a while I was getting something about user cancelled something but I have not seen that in a long time.

I tried to unplug the modem and cables to reset the IP , but that doesnt help. Also not that my service uses a Dynamic IP and I cant switch to static IP.

Its called Event: 1003 Source: DHCP

Your computer was not able to renew its address from the network (from the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address ------------. The following error occurred:
The semaphore timeout period has expired. . Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Hello, My grandpa is trying to get his photos off of his SD card.

Then the window locks up for a few min then he gets a pop up message saying:

I've tried to make it as simple as possible for the system, after doing a clean boot, and it still failing, I'm currently in safe mode, without networking, and am still seeing the error.  Anybody have a suggestion or work around?  Files in other

hello again...

dang this thing is a pain!!

new issue today, trying to save a tiny .rtf file to external USB drive, and get "semaphore timeout period has expired" message and have to save to local drive instead. also get the message if i drag and drop into the desired location.

perhaps related to the issue i occasionally have: the machine loses connection to the external drive and either the folder shows empty (it's not!) or doesn't show as even being connected. little blue light on the drive will sometimes go out, sometimes not, but still no access...

EDIT: i have two verbatim USB drive attached... one or the other of them will occasional disappear from This PC and when i look at device manager there is an error on that drive. i disconnect and reconnect and the drives show up and the error in device manger goes away... there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to why this happens. when it does and i try to save something to the drive, that's when i get the "semaphore timeout period has expired"

i have tried to update drivers using windows search online and it always says i have the best drivers loaded....

the drives have been checked for errors and windows reports none... there is still quite a bit of available space on them (80+ gigs on each) and when they are connected and live, i can access files with no problem... it just decides to seemingly drop the drive randomly...

thanks for any help...

I maintain some software that makes a tcp socket connection to a different piece of software and sends data back and forth (pretty basic stuff there). We use boost asio to handle reading and writing of data over the socket connection. We have a client that
has deployed this software on Windows7. The client has been having issues with our software not being able to maintain a reliable socket connection. One thing I have noticed is that quite often the networking callback are receiving the error: The semaphore
timeout period has expired.

This error is not coming from anywhere in our code (or the boost code). I've done some research on it and I found a Microsoft Knowledge base article on this error for Windows XP (support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/325487). I've seen a few people ask questions about
this error on Windows7, but they're all in regards to moving files to different drives, nothing regarding network connections.

What does this error mean in regards to Windows7? Does the knowledge base article I mentioned still apply to Windows7?

I have always networked them using Cat5 cables and an active hub and had a shared Internet connection on the Desktop and had no massive problems.

one day recently I plugged in the Laptop and turned it on. Not only could I not connect to the net but neither PC could access the other.

I have run the Network setup wizard on the Desktop and then on the Laptop and managed to mess with things so the ICS is now working again. But neither PC can see the other.

I get the error message:

There is only one user on each PC, ME.

I have opened command prompt and ran ipconfig and then ran 'ping'. Both PC's can ping each other with no problems but I can still not access files on each PC. I HAVE shared folders on both and they should be seen.

I have a Dell laptop with an i7 processor, an SSD drive and 8g of ram, running Win7 Pro 64 bit.

I put a 128G micro sd card into the sd card adapter and slapped into the slot. When I try to move files to the card, I get the error.

I formatted the card just for grins. It won't format NTFS, but it did format exFat @ default allocation unit size.

The only file that didn't copy was one that's 21 megs in size. Everything else was smaller and copied over fine.


Donno what to do from here. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Ady,

Thanks for your post!

This issue may be a little complex and require some steps to troubleshoot:

1. Update the driver of wireless network adapters in both of your computers.
2. Temporarily disable all the firewalls and anti-virus applications, then check the issue again.
3. To exclude the factors from other services and applications, do a clean boot to check the issue and perform Step 4.(KB929135) How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vistahttp://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;929135
4. With clean boot, try to apply thehotfixes contained in the following KB articles:(KB932045) Error message when you use a network connection to copy a large file from one Windows Vista-based computer to another Windows Vista-based computer: "The connection has been lost"
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;932045(KB932063) Several problems occur on a Windows Vista-based computer when you work in a wireless network environment
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;932063
If problem still persists after steps above, this issue is very possibly due to network devices or configurations, please let me know:

1. Whether this problem occurs in wired network?
2. If strengthening the network signals, the problem can be changed?
3. What size of files will lead to this error.
4. Does this error terminate the copy process?

Greetings,

My environment is: Win'7, Visual Studio 2010, C#

There is another message on these forums with almost exactly the same title. It's closed, so I couldn't post there.

I'm getting that exact same response from Win'7 in a try /catch scheme.

i.e., "...The semaphore timeout period has expired..."

I am quite confident that the serial port is really there, as he will open and will transfer data from time to time.

It's the whims of the hardware that have me so confused.

The exact same code worked perfectly last night. In fact, it has worked for weeks.

The statement which I believe is causing the error is...
TheUsersChosenSerialPort.Open();​

Much like the other thread mentioned, the port is a BlueTooth connector, and Win'7 is reporting him okay, and so on.

I welcome responses from those with useful knowledge on this topic.

This error, "the semaphore timeout period has expired" keeps popping up when I transfer files over a network. They'll go for about half, and then this error pops up and it's over.

How do I fix that?

Is this a Linksys Router?

Wired or WIFI?

Are you using an Internet Security Suite or ZoneAlarm?
This may also be thr problem....
This can happen when the total path length of the source file
and the total path length of the destination file are greater than a given
value, 128 I believe. When this occures in windows, it results in a Path

Hello Everyone,
I have an on going ATA deployment, where the customer wants to know, the possibility of having the logs / event retained for 1 year and an approximate idea on the impact of storage and any limitations for MongoDB.
As per the ATA sizing tool and article the requirement of ATA center falls in the below specification.




Packets per second from all DCs

CPU (cores*)

Memory (GB)

Database storage per day (GB)

Database storage per month (GB)

IOPS**




















400,000

12

96

120

3,600

2,000 (2,500)



So we have a approx. storage requirement of 3.6 TB per month, so how long are the logs/event on ATA center kept by default and can we change the retention period for the same.
Thank you,

Good Morning All,
 
I am having issues installing Windows updates, they have been failing upon install for the past 3-4 months.  I get the error code 80070079, "The Semaphore timeout has expired".  So I tried backing up my data to just wipe it and reload the OS, the backup fails as well, same error message.  Then I tried moving files manually to an external drive and that as well timeouts on the larger files.  I have searched the Internet and it many people seem to have this issue and it relates to the network adapter, but I am not trying to do anything over the network (Updates are already downloaded just waiting to install), so I feel it is something else.  Does anyone know of a fix or possible solution?  I searched semaphore through the registry and there are a lot of entries, but not sure if i need to change any of them or not?
 
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

A:Why am I getting Timed Out

you're getting timed out because either your, or the remote computer's, connectrivity is compromised.

Are you running a firewall like Free Sygate? How fast is your connection speed? Are you using Dial-up, Cable or DSL? Have you recently performed a updated virus scan - if you're using Mcaffee, which is almost worthless imho, do a on-line virus scan at http://housecall.trendmicro.com

The problem began a few weeks ago when I started experiencing frequent "connection timed out" messages when browsing the web. The problem occurs in Firefox as well as my other browsers. I first contacted my internet provider, Charter, and we went through a bunch of tests to make sure the router was working correctly. Everything seemed ok in that regard. The person on the phone could not determine what was causing the problem and wanted to send a technician to my house. I have 2 big dogs and about 12 cats in my house though, so I'm trying to avoid an in-home visit. Although the router tests and ipconfig tests did not diagnose the trouble, it did seem to help for awhile when I reset my modem. However, after a while the problem starts again. My theory is that some program I use to tweak or cl... Read more

Because XP will not always show you hidden files and folders by default, Go to Start > Search and under "More advanced search options".
Make sure there is a check by "Search System Folders" and "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search system subfolders"

Next click on My Computer. Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and "Hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"

Hi, I'm using Firefox browser, and sometimes when trying to load a web page, it says "Connection timed out, The server is taking too long to respond". I'm sure sometimes, the server is just about to start, but then Firefox gives up because its tired of waiting, it doesn't even know the server is about to send the data! How do you make it wait longer?

BTW I'm aware that this is an Internet Explorer forum, but I couldent find any "Firefox or other browser" section here.

A:Connection timed out

Just let it time out. Wait as long as you like, then refresh the page to see if the server is up.

To refresh your browser:
*Press the "F5" button on your keyboard
or
*Go to the "view" dropdown menu at the top of the window, then select "refresh"

When it first started with this I reset my modem, unplugged everything the whole bit. Now I have to restart my computer every time. I have windows xp and use firefox. I updated firefox not too long ago. Could this be my problem? Have run Spybot and AVG. I just don't know what else to do. Any advice? I sure do appreciate it.

Maybe a DNS server issue?

Restarting your computer refreshes the DNS resolver cache, explaining why you can browse again.

Try using Google Public DNS.

Or, OpenDNS.

Hello,

For the past 2 or 3 days I have been unable to connect to about half of the websites I try to access. I get a message like the following:

The connection has timed out

The server at www.linkedin.com is taking too long to respond.

The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

I have cleared temp files, cache, cookies, history, etc.

I get similar messages in Internet Explorer when trying to access the same sites.

I updated Malwarebytes and ran a full scan. Nothing has been detected.

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium Firefox 8 and Internet Explorer 8

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi. Each time I use a search engine I am redirected to an alternative website or the page loads as 'the connection has timed out'. The only way to bring up the correct page is by accessing the web address from the drop down menu. The computer is slower than usual and tabs close without warning. Also I have an anti-virus application named 'Internet Security Suit', which I'm worried might be a virus itself. It has annoying anti-virus warnings and that pop up on the screen and I am unable to uninstall it.

I scanned the system using Malwarebytes, which detected some infected objects. They were removed but I am still having problems.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
